people who wonder if jim demint's resignation from the senate toward the end of this year sort of marks the start of the downward spiral for the particular brand of conservatism that he and the tea partiers represented. he's sort of taking his ball and going home, although he hopes to keep influencing the debate from a think tank outside of the senate. and i think, you know, you're starting to see that while it's possible for candidates of that stripe to win house seats, you know, localized elections, it's going to get really, really hard for them to carry statewide elections. look at some of the senate races like in places like monta or some of the other ones where you would have thought that, you know, the conservatism would be a very convincing argument, and it just didn't win out. >> so, is it enough for them to say, okay, let's do comprehensive immigration reform, that will take care of the problem with latino voters? >> i think that's the first thing they're going to try. i don't necessarily think it's enough going forward. i talked recently to some silicon valley volunteers for o

coalition, so to speak. the administration jim baker got u.n. sanction for this operation. and it was just, we had no headquarters in the region. right now the central command has a headquarters in qatar. there was fog like that. the arab states didn't really want the americans there and on a permanent basis. so we had, all of this had to be moved first to saudi arabia not region first from the defensive operation and then in an offensive operation. so just months and months for this to even, just to prepare for this. >> and he was in charge of that. but now he was as we lewded to in the piece also criticized for making some strategic mistakes. what were those? >> well, there were well two goals primary goal its one was to evict the iraqi forces from kuwait which was done in the 100 hour ground war after six weeks of bombing, remember that. but the other one was to destroy saddam hussein's offensive powers, primarily his republican guard force. because the thinking was if you didn't destroy them, they could always come back to invade kuwait again plus there was a subtext, they were hoping
who know him, he's a very strong-willed man, and he went out in a car with jim gallager, personally introduced the men, not men who came in through other means like eddy who came in through an athletic scholarship. can everybody hear me? probably better. sat in a coffee shop one night and decided who would get in, the two of them, and presented a bill to father sward, the president at the time, it was $80,000, and a college with a million dollars in endowment at the time was quite a cost to bear so -- what he was looking for, i asked, you know, how do you decide? anybody's who is a parent in the room knows that intelligence is not necessarily something that is a hallmark of success. it doesn't necessarily lead to success, and when you talk to father brooks, he was looking for leadership qualities. he was looking for drive. he was looking for people who had a work ethic, people who were hoping to reach beyond their black and white, and if you may or may not know, he was fighting at the time to get women into the college. sadly, for the class of 1972, i don't think they arrived until
